Gotta Love The Gore- CAUTION!!! Very graphic surgery photos!

Okay, I have made it through surgery!  I am one week post op and this is only my third time on the computer.  Using it makes me so sick that I actually puke.  I am drugged to the max, so I don't know if I even make sense.  But I know everyone is dying for photos and I am happy to share the gore! 

The stats?  27lbs came off from the lower body lift, the inner thigh lift, and the little bit of lipo.  Freaking amazing.

And now the photos.   I will write more when I am not yakking so much.

Lines are drawn!

Meh, no heart needed for my ass.  I am just mooning you all.

My ass being cut out.

New skinny ass!

Pulling up the stomach.  Muscle repair done.  Over 900 stitches in my body.


Inner thigh lift!  ewwww!

Extra bits!

Lipo goooooo!

Well hello mid-section!  Nice to leave you behind!

Faro ladies are the best.  I love you all.

This is all I do now. 

I have 8 drains that fill up with goo and have to be emptied a few times a day.  It is nasty ass shit.

What my inner thigh looked like today.  It will improve a lot with time!

Omg. I puked in my mouth and jumped up and down for you all at the same time. Omg! Your the craziest person ever.

Also... this is fascinating - thank you for sharing! Even though we're strangers I am excited for you and your 'new beginning.' What a great reward for all of your hard work!

Hope recovery gets easier for you, Kara. You are so brave to post all those photos. So happy for you that it's finally done and that, so far, all is going according to plan. I thought your behind shot was sexy, by the way. You had plenty of nice curves even before the surgery, so I can imagine how great you'll look once everything is healed up nicely.
Do let yourself be taken care of.
Thinking of you :)

Whoa! Amazing! Bravo! And congratulations! Thanks for posting pics for our curiosity!

Over 900 stitches? Crazy. And the "New Skinny Ass!" photo is a bit confusing for me, BTW. :) Every single picture is fascinating.

Take it easy! Be kind to yourself during the recovery! Wishing you the very best!

Megan said...

WOW!!!! When you look at those during surgery photos is it hard to believe that it's you?
Thinking of you and wishing you the best!!!

You are by far one of the toughest and most honest people I have had the pleasure of getting to know!
Wishing you an end to the nausea and a speedy recovery after that.

Hoping for a speedy recovery Kara. Some gooey photos for sure. I think I'll hold off on the lasagne I was going to heat up for dinner tonight. :)

Thanks for sharing that. It puts a whole new meaning to reconstructing one's life, and you are one brave chick to take this on and I congratulate you, the old and new you. The other thought was "that's gotta really hurt," but every day will be better.

You are so brave. And probably so bored. You have always been beautiful. Take your time to heal and recover.
